Photo booth business opportunity
A complete package that contains all you need to set up and run your own successful photo booth business
- Low investment level.
- High return.
- Easy to start (no experience required).
- Scores of successful operators.
- NO royalties or fees.
Photo booths are the latest in entertainment for any event, celebration or wedding. They provide happy memories and a fun experience for hosts and guests alike. Not only can images be taken away from the event as a printed memento but they can also be instantly shared on social media.
The growing popularity of photo booths means you can very quickly set up and run your own lucrative hire business. There are a number of ways you can choose to operate. On a part time basis to supplement your existing employment as weekends and evenings are popular times to hire booths. Another option would be to add photo booth hire to an existing business like wedding photography or a mobile disco. Or you may want to start with one booth then build up your company by adding more booths and equipment and take on staff to host the additional units.
A typical four-hour hire is £500. If you were to attend just six events per month that would generate sales of £3,000 per month! Depending on how far you travel, the only costs would be fuel, paper and ink for the photo prints… around £30 an event.
The more events you attend… the more income you earn.
Potential annual sales
No experience necessary - full training given
No specialist technical knowledge is required to take advantage of this opportunity. So long as you have a very basic understanding of computers and cameras, we find that half a day’s training is all that is required. Training is part of our package and included in the price. Our in-house training and 24 hour support mean you can relax and concentrate on booking and hosting your events.
Our three most popular pieces of equipment are our ‘selfie’ mirror, party booth and digital graffiti wall. They all produce high quality photo prints which can be branded with the event theme and can display the images in a variety of layouts.
Photos can also be uploaded to social media directly via a sharing station situated on a stand adjacent to the equipment.
The dream mirror
A unique photo based activation experience that is perfect for any event!
Using a two way mirror, guests can see their reflection like in a normal mirror! The mirror will then spark to life and interactive elements are displayed on-screen. Guests are invited to take their photos by touching the mirror!
The mirror comes in a sturdy flight case and is transportable by car.
The dream pod
Portable and easy to use, the dream pod is ideal for private celebrations or commercial promotions where there is limited space such as stores, shopping centres, exhibition stands and restaurants.
Photos can be taken of individuals or large groups. The dream pod itself is simple to set up and operate and requires very little technical knowledge.
It is easy to transport, and will fit into almost any car. The dream pod arrives in a wheeled transport case and is assembled and ready to operate in less than 15 minutes.
Dream graffiti - The digital graffiti wall
Guests use clever ‘digital’ spray cans to produces an array of spray patterns, colours, brush and pen effects. The user simply aims the can at the giant graffiti wall to produce their own design.
Spray artwork can be created on a blank canvas or preloaded photos, backgrounds or templates.
Photos and ‘selfies’ taken at the event can be uploaded instantly giving guests the opportunity to write messages, spray facial hair and funny hats directly onto the image on screen.
Event technology that’s a huge draw!
In 2010, brothers-in-law Matthew Shaw and Matthew Franks saw the potential in photo booth hire and invested in their first one. Their business started from a garage with just one booth and a telephone. Now their operation, based in Chesterfield, has a head office and warehouse with showroom and training facilities. They have a full time team of fifteen including event and technical staff.
They hire booths and other event technology to hundreds of events every year in the UK and overseas. They have developed their own software which is renowned in the industry. Dreambooth regularly supplies technology and equipment to organisations like the BBC, eBay and Xbox. Their understanding of the booth hire industry has been built up over literally thousands of hires. It is not only the quality and reliability of their products that you are investing in. It is the operational and marketing expertise included in the package that will springboard your business to success.
